- You know the saying "It takes a village to raise a child."
In Woodruff, it took a town and a website to find a dog.
Ben and Christine Woynich's black lab Bo disappeared Thursday around 2:30.
His owners called Newswatch 12 around 8:00 p.m. and we posted a description on our Facebook wall.
The post reached over 2,000 people and got 65 comments from people promising to keep an eye out.
At least three people who didn't even know the Woynichs went out looking for Bo.
"I was so surprised at how many people went out just to help us out of the kindness of their heart and look for him late at night," Christine said. "It was awesome, and we really appreciate it."
"One volunteer on foot was tracking prints in the woods by MHLT," Ben said."He was really into it, so that was cool."
Thanks to a call from another stranger, Ben and Christine found Bo near Blue Lake Road around 10:00 Friday morning.
They're happy to have him back, and so is their other lab mix, Baloo.
"He wouldn’t eat the whole time Bo was gone," Christine said. "He just seemed sad and kind of moping around. We could definitely tell he missed his brother."
Ben and Christine said about 50 people contacted them to help look for Bo.
He is sore and tired, but otherwise doesn't seem hurt.
